Pulitzer Prize-winning novels

Has anyone read any fiction awarded the Pulitzer? I'm trying to enter into a higher echelon of reading endeavors, and wanted to check if anyone had some suggestions/ideas on which PP-winners were worth trying out.

I'm reading Martin Dressler right now. Steven Millhouse is becoming one of my favorite authors.

THE ROAD by cormac mccarthy (no country for old men.)

ALL THE KINGS MEN-abit of a struggle to read but worth it.

i would of never read any of his books if i didn`t get' no country' for my birthday years back.so i read it as not to be rude.

I LOVED IT.then i read blood merridian which is amazing,great ending.

i didn`t like 'cities of the plain' which is the finally part of the boarder trilogy.

and' the road 'is a must read for everyone.

so to answer your question,yeahs he`s ok .

you?

A Confederacy of Dunces is the first that comes to mind.

American Pastoral too. The Pulitzer is kind of a sham mostly.

I'll happily recommend these winners:

Harper Lee - To Kill A Mockingbird (1961)

Michael Shaara - The Killer Angels (1974)

Toni Morrison - Beloved (1988)

It was excellent, one of the better ones I've ever read, but I don't know...'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' was clutch.
